Bolton Beer & Cider Week

Promoted by Bolton CAMRA

Having considered the views of local breweries, pubs & bars we have decided to cancel the already postponed Bolton beer & Cider Week BCW, which was due 20-29 November. There is so much uncertainty around Pandemic rules, & necessary concentration on long term survival that November seems too close. We will continue to keep our twitter & FB streams active and promote & publicise anything that our local industry comes up with, but the next #BBCW21 will be 02-11 July 2021. Best wishes to all of you over the coming months.


During this week we will be looking to work with pubs and clubs across the town to:

  • Promote quality real ale, cider and perry
  • Provide opportunities to learn more about production and styles of beer and cider
  • Give opportunities to try a range of beers and ciders
  • Promote and the improve the beer and cider scene in Bolton

Suggestions are:

  • Mini-beer festivals
  • Meet the Brewer events
  • Tap takeovers
  • Tasting evenings
  • Launch of new beers
  • Beer/cider food matching
  • Beer-based quizzes
  • Film nights

If you are interested in organising an event for Bolton Beer and Cider Week 2021 then please contact to discuss your ideas and ask about any support you may require.
